Never Enough Wool
How in the world did it get to be October already?!? And the 6th at that?!?!? Seems like just yesterday it was the first of September and we had plenty of time to get our holiday planning and knitting accomplished! And Thanksgiving!! Barb and Carol are grateful for our continued good health, our families, and all our friends. What are you thankful for?
We have been receiving our wonderful fall yarns. From Estelle we have Union, an acrylic/wool blend that is perfect for warm, snugly cowls. We also have received a restock on Filati di Crosa Marte, a favourite from last fall. Lastly, we received some new colours of Cascade Color Duo, a gorgeous wool/alpaca blend.
Don’t forget to check out the patterns we are using for our Knit-A-Longs and Crochet-A-Long. Friesland has Barb totally enchanted, and she is working on her Great American Aran Afghan steadily. Sophie’s Universe starts in January, and Carol even has her colours selected. We should mention that Carol very rarely thinks about crocheting anything, let alone something as large and beautiful as an afghan! We are also starting Old Forge by Stephen West in January. We foresee many very warm afghans in our future!
Don’t forget that we do have gift ideas for your family to gift to you as the holidays approach. We have project bags arriving, as well as knitting diaries. We have traditionally kept a gift registry so that your families can get you exactly what you want or need. Of course, we also offer gift certificates.
December will, as usual, be our “catch-up” month. No official classes will be offered but the class time Tuesday night will continue to be available. This is a great time to sit and catch your breath, work on your projects without worrying about family seeing their gifts. We will have plenty of relaxing tea and conversation as well.
We have a box of donations for Denise House, and will be delivering it at the end of October. Please bring your donations in before then to be included with our box.
Happy knitting and crocheting!
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
Building in Color – Michelle Hunter has done it again! An afghan worked in multi-coloured techniques to expand your knitting horizons. Our next class session is October 9 at 10:30 am. The plan will be to meet and start the panel in question and then for homework, finish the panel to be ready for the next month. There are ten colour panels, a class to discuss seaming, and another class to discuss the borders. Cost is $25, plus materials and book.Double Knitting – Learn how to create a project with TWO right sides! Yes, two right sides. The project has not totally been decided, but the technique certainly has! If you have a preference – mittens, hat, cowl, scarf – let us know! Beginners to the technique will be making double-knit mittens, while experienced double-knitters will be making a double-knit hat. (See the newest Vogue magazine for the project!) Class will begin on Tuesday, October 6, 2015, at either 1:00 or 7:00 pm. Cost is $25 plus materials.
Socks – Always wanted to learn how to make socks? Want to brush up so that you are ready to join Barb and Carol in The Year of Socks? This is your time! We will be teaching your choice of top-down or toes-up. Class starts November 3, at 1:00 or 7:00 pm. Again, cost is $25 plus materials.
December – Catch Your Breath! Everyone is too busy and frazzled for a class in December, so we are going to help. Every Tuesday night and afternoon, we are hosting “open knitting” so that you will have a chance to sip some tea with your people, without being interrupted by family or friends. We might even get some knitting and crocheting done!
Sit ‘n Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3. Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Saturday Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2 until 4. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?
Knitting Night: Every Thursday, from 7 until 9. Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed. There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
